Fall Floral Decor Ideas
A centerpiece is usually the main display on a table setting. It helps set the theme of the decorations and is meant to draw attention and make a statement. You can incorporate floral designs into your centerpiece and have those same flowers as accents around the room to tie everything together.
Tablescapes can elevate the dining experience. It is when you have an arrangement of items on a table that produces an attractive and decorative effect. You can do this by matching dinnerware, cutlery, napkins, and florals.
Having a beautiful centerpiece and floral tablescapes will show your guests and family that you care about their experience in your home. Small fall floral decor arrangements around the table can bring warmth to the table and encourage conversation between guests.
Fall floral decorating ideas for the table can also include a fall garland that can lay across the entire table. However, be sure that the flowers don’t block guests from seeing each other.
The entryway is the first thing anyone sees when entering the home and it’s where you get to set the tone for what experience the rest of your home will be like, so you want to be sure that it is warm and welcoming. Incorporating floral design and arrangements in your entryway will be a pleasant surprise for your guests.
Beautiful curated flower arrangements in different house rooms can uplift your mood and home decor. Our bedrooms are not only a place for sleeping, but it’s a place for relaxing.
There are many items you can add to your bedside table such as a catchall tray and a lamp but a large vase of flowers will give it an aesthetic look and bring healing energy.
Fall florals on a shelf are a subtle way to bring some color to the room. You can scatter several small displays on different levels of the shelf to add some dimension and use some clear jars or vases so that the florals can shine and be the focus. You can also use the same flowers for each display or experiment with several varying arrangements.
The kitchen is one of the most utilized places in our household and sometimes we forget that it needs a little bit of decorating too. Flowers can make your kitchen more bright and homely. Try using a variety of florals with different colors and textures and choose some that will complement your kitchen space.
Create an inviting environment by adding a splash of color with some fall floral decor in your bathroom. Flower arrangements can make bathrooms feel more luxurious and glamorous. You’ll want to be careful when choosing what flowers to add since they will need to be able to tolerate low light and high humidity. Another great option is to go for silk flower arrangements since they will stay vibrant and will be one less thing you need to worry about.
Which fall florals should I use?
When it comes to decorating with flowers around the home, there are several options you can choose from. You can use fresh, dried, or faux flowers. The option you choose will depend on different factors such as the amount of natural light in the room, the humidity, and budget.
Although fresh flowers are beautiful and fragrant, it can get a little pricey having several bouquets around the house or constantly having to change them when they start to wilt.
Some popular fall flowers include chrysanthemums, hydrangeas, mums, crocosmia, gerbera daisies, and dahlias.
Permanent cloth or silk flowers sometimes have a higher price point but they need minimal care and never need to be replaced. You could also consider wood flowers if that would fit in with your homestyle better.
Dried florals hold their own beauty and are timeless. They come in beautiful neutral colors and are easy to use when creating trendy fall floral arrangements. They are also long-lasting and don’t require any care. Some other options to include in your fall floral decor are pampas grass, winter berries, fall leaves, and branches. These will all help bring the natural elements of fall into your home.
Creating a Fall Floral Arrangement for Thanksgiving
View your space with a fresh perspective
Before you head out to the store, shop your home and see what you already have on hand that could be used for your floral tablescape. This can include unused candle sticks, faux leaf garlands, vases and antique serving trays. Anything that is not being used or you think would look better on the table would work!
Pick your color palette for your florals
Think about what colors you want to focus on for your florals. It can be jewel tones, warm or cool tones, neutrals or you can have a little bit of everything. Be sure to incorporate flowers of different lengths, colors, shapes and textures to add more depth and dimension to make your floral design stand out.
Then arrange your favorite autumn blooms in an elegant vase. You can also use a moistened block of floral foam to create your arrangement and place it on a tray.
Add in the finishing touches
Once you’re happy with your floral arrangement, it’s time to add in the finishing touches. This can be a spread of fall accents such as foliage, wooden branches, and garlands. Fruits such as pomegranates, apples, pears and figs are great ways to add pops of color and dimension.
You’ll want to make sure that your table setting goes well with your decor. In a delicious platter, add some fresh fruits and cheese for your guests to enjoy while they admire your beautiful creation.
